Awesome App Transforms Your iPad into an ’80s Tape Deck


As much as we love the variety and convenience of digital music, sometimes we miss the good, old days, when we had to tape our favorite songs off the radio if we wanted to listen to them over and over again without visiting the record store. That’s why we’re smitten with Stereolizer, an app that transforms your iPad into an ’80s stereo system — complete with a tape deck that allows you to record music from internet radio stations. You can even turn the tuning dial (and hear authentic-sounding static) to find new stations and “hand label” your radio mix when you finish making it. And for only $1.99 — the cost of about two cassette tapes, if our memory serves — the nostalgia fix comes cheap. [via Wired]
